Mega Man is a franchise that’s been around long enough to spawn several different kinds of spinoffs, and though the games have been known best for their classic platforming, they did venture into strategy with Mega Man Battle Network that came out back in the early 00s. Now MBN is aiming for a return to the Nintendo Switch.

Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection Announced for Nintendo Switch

Here’s the official announcement of Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection:

Here’s the official description:

The Battle Network is back! Get ready to jack in to the net to face off against deadly enemy programs in electrifying grid based battles, and search the net for rare and powerful BattleChips to build the ultimate deck of special moves!

The renowned Mega Man Battle Network series, which has expanded into anime and comics, comes to modern consoles in the Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection. Volume 1 includes four action-packed games from Mega Man Battle Network to both versions of Mega Man Battle Network 3!

In 200X, the rapid advancement of Internet technology has created the “network age.” People have come to enjoy the benefits of network technology through portable exploration devices called “PET” and personality simulation programs called NetNavi. As the network world expands and life becomes more convenient, however, network crime is raging. Main character Lan Hikari and his NetNavi, MegaMan.EXE, join forces to confront these incidents.

The full collection will actually be split into two volumes, and volume 1 of the collection includes Mega Man Battle Network, Mega Man Battle Network 2, Mega Man Battle Network 3 Blue, and Mega Man Battle Network 3 White.

The collection also comes with some additional features like a High Resolution filter as well as an art gallery and collection of music.
